Missed the 2024 Paddling Film Festival? Looking to connect with other paddlers in the community? Look no further! The Complete Paddler will be hosting Movie nights at our store where paddling Film Festival movies will be shown. Showing some of the best paddling films in the world these movie nights will be entertaining, insightful and exciting! One hundred percent of the night’s proceeds will be going directly to Project Canoe, a Toronto-based youth charity program which aims to foster a transformative environment for young people using the outdoors as a primary medium.

Showing April 18th 2024:

1. Sleeping Giants: Sleeping Giants explores Iceland’s coastline by paddle. Join two sea kayakers as they experience intimate wildlife encounters, paddling under dramatic towering cliffs, surfing in blizzards and gliding past icebergs. (Director and Producers: James Stevenson, Simon Osborne) (NOT SHOWN AT PREMIERE) 

2. Renovating A Canoe While Running A Marathon: In between all the dust and rot and problem-solving of giving a banged-up fleet canoe a new lease on life, Beau Miles runs around his paddock to complete a marathon. “I did this non-stop for 24 hours, and by golly, it was a bloody great day,” says Miles. (Director: Beau Miles, Producers: Beau Miles, Mitch Drummond) (SHOWN AT PREMIERE)

3. Beyond The Salish: Two kayakers take on a once-in-a-lifetime journey along the Pacific Coast of Vancouver Island, paddling into relentless waves, unpredictable weather, and the uncharted depths of their fears. The duo finds themselves in a life-altering struggle against the elements. As their journey unfolds, a near-death experience forces them to confront the raw power of the open ocean, pushing the boundaries of their friendship, endurance and luck. (Director: Richard Chen, William Chong, Producer: Merrisa Mah) (SHOWN AT PREMIERE)

4.  David Haze: From prison to world records and environmental activism, this film tells the story of one man’s journey of self-discovery and the transformative power of the paddle. (Director and Producer: Angus Peel) (SHOWN AT PREMIERE)

5. Driving Sweep: Few river guides ever get the chance to drive Idaho’s iconic sweep boat. Driving Sweep follows Katie Veteto as she learns how to “drive sweep” down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. She’s learned the rapids and the river. Now, she learns how to drive a 4,000-pound sweep down steep, rocky rapids. (Director and Producer: Gregory Cairns) (SHOWN AT PREMIERE)
